T reatment Technology and Research Progress of Pesticide and Pharmaceutical Wastewater

Qiang Zhou


China is a major agricultural country, with the production and use of pesticides ranking among the top in the world.
Pesticides generate a large amount of wastewater during their production and use. Once these wastewater fl ows into the environment, it
can cause harm to the environment, soil, vegetation, and human health.This article analyzes the characteristics and hazards of pesticide
wastewater, analyzes the main technologies of pesticide and pharmaceutical wastewater in China, and proposes the use of physical,
chemical, biological, and combination processes to treat pesticide wastewater, reduce harmful substances in pesticide wastewater, and reduce
environmental hazards. Physical chemical, biological, and advanced oxidation methods are used to treat pharmaceutical wastewater, so as to
meet discharge standards, standardize the treatment process of pesticide and pharmaceutical wastewater, and further improve the treatment
technology of pesticide and pharmaceutical wastewater
